German firemen rescued a mysteriously bare-bodied man trapped in a narrow chimney in central Berlin, a spokesman said on Thursday.
The fire brigade was alerted to the emergency after police failed to help the 39-year old man who was wedged 10 meters (yards) down the shoulder-width chimney.
“The rescue workers, specialized in saving people at great heights, tried to pull the victim out from above with a crane and a sling,” a fire brigade spokesman said.
The team of about 30 firemen and 10 police officers bored a hole in the second floor of the building and managed to pull out the victim but not before he had lost consciousness. He needed 15 minutes of resuscitation and is still in hospital.
“He suffered from injuries in the fall and due to his scant clothing – namely his bare body – he became very cold,” the spokesman said.
It is not known what the man was doing on the roof. Some media reports said he was homeless and escaped from a hospital.
